I became a VG fan because of Jack Bogle. He did more for individual investors than anyone.Taylor Larimore wrote: ↑Fri Oct 23, 2020 1:08 pm Bogleheads:
Mr. Bogle carefully selected the name "Vanguard" for his company in 1978. "Vanguard" was the name of Lord Nelson's victorius flagship in the Battle of the Nile. Jack called his employees "crew" and he named the company cafeteria "Galley."
"Vanguard" meant a lot to him (he owned a small sailboat) and to me (I was a licenced Coast Guard captain). Changing Vanguard's logo is very sad, and in my opinion, stupid marketing.
TaylorJack Bogle's Words of Wisdom (2001): "I came to the saga of the historic Battle of the Nile (recently designated by The New York Times as the greatest battle of the millennium), where in 1798, Lord Nelson sank Napoleon's fleet. -- And two weeks later, on September 24, 1974, "The Vanguard Group, Inc." was born."
To me, he was the Admiral of Vanguard....always will be.
I hope removing the ship as the Vanguard logo doesn’t cause the taste of my coffee to sink.
I’m very very disappointed to see this happen; I’m sure Jack would be also.
